UK 1985. 97min
Two men from different backgrounds struggle in their interracial relationship, and try to find common ground while trying to realise their ambition of opening a glamorous laundromat. A queer classic in every respect, My Beautiful Laundrette artfully combines realism and hope, and creates a convincing snapshot of 1980’s England, while maintaining intimacy and emotion.
